REPUBLIC [ri-puhb-lik] : a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens.

When talking about Orange County California, some might conjure the image of sparkling strip malls, plastic body parts, or a landscape of tract mansions filled with serene seascape beach scenes. As lovely as this picture by Bravo is… the OC is not all Housewives.
